Posted Breed: Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie / Mixed (short coat). I’m a very special boy who has already become a shelter favorite with everyone he meets! Though I might be a little older than your average shelter doggie, I have personality for days! When I first arrived at Second Chance, I was missing most of my fur from a skin infection, and was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease. A few more tests determined that I’m actually Cushings free! I do have a little bit of arthritis in my spine and right knee, and seem to be mostly deaf, but I get around just fine, and manage very well with an anti-inflammatory. Now that my skin feels better, my beautiful white locks are coming back in, making me extra handsome! I know once you meet me you’ll see for yourself- I am a perfect little guy, who’s looking for his perfect human!

A.K.A. : A mongrel, mixed-breed dog
Overview: A mongrel, mutt, or mixed-breed dog, is a dog that is not the result of breeding within an existing breed or to modify or create a breed and belongs to no breed. In the United States, the term "mixed-breed" is a favored synonym over "mongrel" among many who wish to avoid negative connotations associated with the latter term. The implication that such dogs must be a mix of defined breeds may stem from an inverted understanding of the origins of dog breeds. Pure breeds have been, for the most part, artificially created from random-bred populations by human selective breeding with the purpose of enhancing desired physical, behavioral, or temperamental characteristics. Dogs that are not purebred are not necessarily a mix of such defined breeds. Therefore, among experts and fans of such dogs, "Mongrel" is still the preferred term.

Country of Origin: Unknown

More About Mutt Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Beagle Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Beagle / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). My name is Cinnamon and I'm just as sweet as my name - you'll notice that as soon as you meet me, because I smile just like a human and my whole body wiggles along with my tail. I am, by far, the most well-rounded pup here: I enjoy other dogs, I don't mind cats, I'm perfectly house trained and I'm not too big or too small! Don't I sound like the perfect package? That's because I am! I also love to play with toys (stuffed toys, ropes, balls, I don't discriminate!) almost as much as I love to give people kisses on the lips. I am a little ray of sunshine, so I'm not sure why my former owner left me at Dallas Animal Services... but Second Chance took me in and promised that a very good girl like me deserved a loving, forever home, and that they'd find my new family for me. Maybe you're the family they told me about? ADOPTION PROCESS: Adopters must visit with an adoption counselor and complete an application.

      Breed: Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Howdy there, I'm Ike. I'm an easygoing, eager to please fellow who is looking for my forever home. Are you a fan of giving belly rubs, throwing a ball, and offering up the best snuggle time a dog could ever offer? I hope so, because I'm in the market to be on the receiving end of those things. I'm happy all the time and my tail is always wagging; you'll notice I have a full-time smile on my face, too. There isn't much that bothers me, and I think I would be okay with other easy going dogs like myself. Ideally, I'm looking for a forever home where I can get my playtime in (to show off my athleticism - you'll be amazed by how muscular I am!) before rounding out the day with some one-on-one attention. A good, healthy balance of play time and down time would be a perfect fit! So if you're looking for a little ray of sunshine in your life, come on down and scoop me up. I promise to keep you happy for as long as I live. ADOPTION PROCESS: Adopters must visit with an adoption counselor and complete an application.

      Breed: American French Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: French Bulldog / Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Hello, I'm Lilo! With my cute bat ears and my slight underbite, I'm almost irresistible. I say "almost" because no one has taken me home yet - maybe I've been waiting for you? :) I was brought to a local shelter skinny and full of worms, and now that I'm feeling better, I'm looking for a family of my own who appreciates my contagious happiness and zest for life. I love every person I've ever met, and I'm also great with dogs and cats, big or small. I am the perfect dog for an active family who is ready to take on the world with me - a family who understands that "ohana" means "family," and "family" means no one gets left behind! So what do you say, are you ready to bring me home forever? ADOPTION PROCESS: Adopters must visit with an adoption counselor and complete an application.
